  1. Designer 1.7.2, OSX 10.15.1 I have a number of lines/curves drawn with the pen tool, but I'm unable to make nodes join together. I've followed a video tutorial, but for some reason clicking the 'Join Curves' button in the context toolbar does nothing. I've got both objects selected, then selected the two nodes and then hit 'Join Curves' but it just doesn't do anything.
  2. Designer 1.7.2, OSX 10.15.1 (19B88) When using the pen tool, things always aren't constrained to the grid when holding shift. Some things are, others aren't. See attached image. I've tried a number of industry standard modifyers but so far, nothing.
  3. Thanks Yes, I do. I'm still interested to know what you were going to add.
  4. Thanks all. Yes, I've tried that and it's somewhat suitable but doesn't seem to play well with more complex shapes where I need to isolate other areas.
  5. Thanks. See attached image.
  6. Affinity Photo 1.7.3, OSX Catalina 10.15.1 (19B88) Using the pen tool to create a path, then using the 'selection' option from the context menu. I'm isolating a load of product photos and keeping the curves is kinda important.
  7. After creating a path and then creating a selection from it, the path then disappears from the layers panel. I'd really like to keep my paths. A workaround is to duplicate each path but as I'm working with a dozen paths for hundreds of images, it's just really slowing me down. Am I missing something?
  8. I've noticed that if I have artboards with duplicate names instead of writing files with 'Image-1.png', 'image-2.png' or whatever one of the images is simply overwritten meaning one is missing from the export. I know that the obvious solution is don't use the same names for artboards but I'm working with 100's of boards and some need to have similar names. Inadvertently I sometimes use the same one. Designer should append a number to duplicate image names to prevent this happening. While I'm at it, is there a way to view artboards alphabetically etc. in the layers panel?
  9. Thanks Everybody. It was the baseline grid. I messed with it while trying to familiarize myself with publisher.
  10. I'm having an issue where adjusting the leading (character or paragraph) is only having an effect when I choose more extreme values, say 0pt or 20pt. Apart from that it's not making any difference? Am I missing something?
  11. +1 Unless I'm missing something, a separate artboard tab would be extremely useful.
  12. Okay, thank for your help.
  13. Thanks. Please see attached. affinity selection issue (convert-video-online.com).mp4
  14. When using the pixel tool is there a way to have it snap to the grid? I've got it snapping to pixels but it would be much quicker if I could snap to grid or define the pixel snapping.
  15. I'm having a hard time trying to select objects. I have to select the artboard and then go and select the object. This issue is really slowing my work down. Is there an option I'm missing?
